GREENSBORO, N.C. – Larry G. Johnson, president of the North Carolina Credit Union League and one of the veteran League staff executives in the U.S. with 36 years in top management posts with the North Carolina League, is retiring at yearend. Johnson, who joined the League in 1972 as executive vice president after serving as first time manager of First Carolina Corporate Credit Union, is due for a series of honors during the year as he leaves office, officials said. An upcoming tribute is expected at the annual meeting of the North Carolina League June 22 in Pinehurst. A League search task force has been organized to find his replacement, said a League spokesman. Johnson, 63, began his credit union career in December 1967 as the first full time manager of First Carolina Corporate. In 1970, he moved from the corporate CU to the newly created Credit Union Service Corp. as technical assistance director. A native of Greensboro, Johnson, prior to joining First Carolina Corporate, served eight years with the U.S. Air Force where he received extensive training in accounting, finance and budgeting. For service in Japan and Germany, he was twice awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal. In 1972, Johnson became League executive vice president with primary responsibilities for legislative/regulatory activities. Moving up to president, he has served on numerous national committees and has been a three-term director of the Association of Credit Union League Executives Board. During 1986/1987, he was chairman of the National Credit Union Political Action Committee – CULAC. Regionally, Johnson is a director of the Southeast Regional Service Corp., a cooperative effort by state leagues to develop regional/national shared service facilities, and a director of the Southeast Regional Schools. He has also been instrumental in League participation of Duke Medical Center’s Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Research Laboratory, a six-year project that raised over $500,000 plus a five-year project that raised over $450,000 for Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina. In addition he has spearheaded an effort to raise $250,000 for the Victory Junction Gang Camp, a facility for children with life threatening illnesses. -
